What is Podiatry?
Podiatry is an important area of allied health that is focused on diagnosing, treating, and preventing conditions of the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. Foot doctors, also known as podiatrists, are highly qualified healthcare professionals who use a variety of methods, including medical, surgical, and rehabilitative techniques, to address foot and ankle problems.
Podiatrists cater to patients of all ages, from children to the elderly, who suffer from various medical conditions such as diabetes, sports injuries, and arthritis. They play an important role in promoting their patients’ mobility, independence, and overall well-being. Through providing customised care, advice, and treatment, podiatrists can prevent the development of further complications and improve their patients’ overall health and quality of life.
What Can I Expect at my First Podiatry Appointment?
Initial consultation with a podiatrist will include a thorough assessment of your foot and ankle, as well as a gait assessment and medical history analysis. By assessing your ankle and foot, and your symptoms, our podiatrists will be able to propose a proven treatment plan. We use advanced techniques as part of our treatment plans including gait analysis, orthotics, shockwave therapy, dry needling and rehabilitation exercise programs so your treatment is tailored to your individual needs.
